Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Thanksgiving show

Hello: I've been wonderin' what show I would play for my neighbors as they sit down for their Thanksgiving meal on Thursday. Thanks to "He Lives" and his psychotic "ARROWS" post, I found the perfect show:

[1976-07-18, Orpheum Theatre]

Mississippi Half Step, Cassidy, Row Jimmy, Mama Tried, Scarlet Begonias, Looks Like Rain, Tennessee Jed, Minglewood Blues, Loser, The Music Never Stopped Might As Well, Samson & Delilah, Candyman, Lazy Lightning-> Supplication-> Let It Grow-> Drums-> Let It Grow-> Wharf Rat-> The Other One-> Saint Stephen-> Not Fade Away-> Saint Stephen-> The Wheel-> The Other One-> Stella Blue, Sugar Magnolia, E: Johnny B. Goode

Thanks to "He Lives,"

I'm playin' that suggested show now Ashes.

update: I played it. It's purty good.

Any show with a St. Stephen in it is worth spilling wine to at a family gathering.

But let's face it, the single most joyous festive show here on the archive has gotta be this one:

I might also suggest this Thanksgiving 1976 classic, but I won't:

The Last Waltz was a concert by The Band held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco.

Billed as a "farewell" concert after 16 years of touring, The Band was joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters, Dr. John, and Neil Young.

The event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary, released in 1978. The film features concert performances, scenes shot on a studio soundstage and interviews by Scorsese with members of The Band.

A triple-LP soundtrack recording was issued in 1978. The film was released on DVD in 2002 as was a four-CD box set of the concert and related studio recordings.

If it's brown, flush it down.
